58th entry, Vienna
Whenever I see works of art, like right now the works of Gustav Klimt, I become alive and inspired. I feel the urge to start working with color and joyfully create works of art that are a testimony to enthusiasm and spirit. Life is full of colors. It would be a shame not to use them.
Life is not about one and one make two. Rather there are three or four possibilities and resources that should not be allowed to lie dormant.
I wish everybody had the courage to dare to use them.
Café Central, 20th December 2017: Whenever I visit Vienna it seems to me the entire world is made up of music, literature, art, cafés, and cakes. This suits me well and I can never get enough of it.
Museum of art Albertina, 21st December 2017: There it is again. This special feeling that overwhelms me when I look at works of art. I want to paint. And I think I have only just begun. After more than 2000 works of art that I have created I feel my fingers itch and I gasp for air.
What an exquisite pleasure to have such feelings.
Return flight: At age 51 I am a contented man. I am so much more composed and patient than I used to be. I see the moment as a gift. I view life as a gift.
